Vancouver’s [lastfm]The Pack A.D.[/lastfm] have always been one duo whose bite has lived up to their bark. For their first three albums — most notably 2010-s We Kill Computers — singer-guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller cultivated the gnashing blues of the [lastfm]White Stripes[/lastfm] and the [lastfm]Black Keys[/lastfm]. They’ve kept their new album, Unpersons (producer Jim Diamond, who worked with the Stripes) no less brash, and certainly every bit as dark, given the overriding theme that our digital identities are not really identities at all.
Unpersons is the duo’s fourth full length album was released last week on Mint Records. It will come as no surprise to anyone who has followed Canada’s hardest working garage rock duo that they will be celebrating their new release by christening their brand new touring van HAL and getting right back on the road to support it.
